Professional Root canal Treatment
Although it subsequently has no nerve (is dead), it is regarded as a healthy tooth. Root canal treatment is usually a painless procedure and avoids the need for an extraction. It is almost always advisable to save a tooth where possible.
The tooth may need to be crowned afterwards as root treated back teeth can fracture more easily. Front teeth do not always need a crown after root treatment. Occasionally there may be a need for bleaching if they darken.
Our Endodontics use the latest technology in root treatments such as nickel titanium rotary files, digital x-rays and apex locators to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.
